A stitchy weekend

Well, i did some stitching this weekend. I mostly worked on St. Patty bear. I have everything done, I just have to do the little bag of gold that he is holding one paw, that is holding the four leaf clover and some backstitch, and he is done. I will have to post a picture tomorrow as hubby is on his computer! And I am going nuts, as I wanted to stitch the few pieces of gold in metallic DMC and do you think I can find it? I guess I will just have to keep looking.

Well, today I had the day off, and hubby and I got to hang out. I enjoy having weekend days off, that way I can spend time with him. We watched some highlander while we did some stitching, and then we went to my owrk and bought some groceries, and then we went to the library and got some books. Gosh! It had been FOREVER since I have been in a library, and I forgot how much I miss it! All those books, and the quiet atmosphere. The best part is you can "get" books to read for free! Which I really should take advantage of, as I love to read, but I think the prices of books has become pretty crazy, 8$ for a paperback novel now days! and I usually only read them once! I usually buy them at my work where you can get them for about half price. But still. Now, if there was such a thing as a cross stitch pattern library, it'd be great! Actually they had a few cross stitch books there, and I may check them out at a later time.

Well,this evening I tried to settle in with Patchwork Bears, however...it just is not inspiring me. When I sit down to work on it, I may get about ten or fifteen minutes in on it, before I am bored, and set it down. Why is that?! I don't get it, because I love the pattern! It is so cute, and I love the colors, but stitching it is driving me banarkers! Does anyone else have this problem? You get a great project, or a new pattern that you fall in love with, then you sit down to get to work and your "love affair" goes sour? What is up with this? I wonder if I should try to work it on another fabric? I think I have it started on 16 cnt aida. That could be the problem! It may even be 14 count. Whcih feels huge to me! I don't know. I just can't seem to get into it!

Oh well. I really shouldn't be working on it anyway, as I have obligation stitching to get done first! Which I put a few hours into Nov. Quilt yesterday and it is coming along. Well, i am off to put my jammies on and settle in with one of my new library books! bye!

Hi Lana,
Sounds like reading a good book or two might be what you need to get you past your stitching blahs. :D
Glad you had some quality and quantity time with dh!!

Just popping in to say "hi"... I haven't been by your blog in a couple of weeks. This nasty thing called "work" has gotten in the way. :( Glad to hear you've been doing some stitching.

I feel your pain on the Patchwork Bears. The same thing happens to me from time to time. Usually, I blame it on the fabric.
